“First the energy of God descends upon the Earth, then it pretends whatever it wants to be, then it ascends back to its source. You are God pretending to be whatever you are right now. Do you understand what this means? You have allowed yourself to descend, but by pretending to be less than what you are, you have not ascended back God.”—Thomas (Indigo Child)
Let’s Talk About It
We are talking about Holy Ground this month in The Espirational Community on Facebook. While due to the founders of this site’s personal backgrounds this is a Christ based Website this site and The Espirational Community is a place for people of all faiths to gather, discuss and praise the God of us all. Please consider this your invitation to join our community and participate in the discussion of this timely topic.
“Jesus Christ knew he was God. So wake up and find out eventually who you really are. In our culture, of course, they’ll say you’re crazy and you’re blasphemous, and they’ll either put you in jail or in a nut house (which is pretty much the same thing). However if you wake up in India and tell your friends and relations, ‘My goodness, I’ve just discovered that I’m God,’ they’ll laugh and say, ‘Oh, congratulations, at last you found out.”
― Alan W. Watts, The Essential Alan Watts
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trustin him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. — Romans 15:13 NIV (from Bible Gateway,com)
Here in the U.S. we like to throw the name of God around a lot. Our “pledge of allegiance” to the flag of our country contains the words “one Nation under God.” Even our money has the words “in God we Trust.” But do we — really?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust one man alone to solve all the problems in the world and in our country?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust the government to create a just society?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust our guns to keep us safe without killing an innocent friend, neighbor or family member?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust our money to provide our needs and make us feel important?
Do we trust God? Or do we trust the military to destroy our enemies without destroying the lives and futures of the soldiers who are fighting?
Do we trust God? Or do we believe that perhaps God has turned his back on us and that we have to fight the evil in the world on our own?
It’s time we looked at what’s going on in the world and asked the difficult questions. Do we really trust God?
